The Board of the Django Software Foundation is pleased to announce that the 2021 Malcolm Tredinnick Memorial Prize has been awarded to Adam Johnson.

Adam Johnson is a member of the Django Technical Board and a longtime member of the security team. He has contributed a huge amount of code to Django itself and maintains multiple Django third-party packages. He is a co-organizer of The London Django Meetup and regularly gives talks at Django and Python conferences. He has also written a book on Django testing and his personal blog has a lot of content educating people on Python and Django best practices. He is actively helpful on Twitter and the Django mailing lists.

Jeff Triplet, one of the six people who nominated Adam had this to say about Adam:

I think Adam Johnson has done an incredible amount of work and deserves recognition. Between his numerous Django-focused OSS work, his work on Django itself, being on the Technical Board, his weekly blogging efforts, organizing the London Django meetups, speaking at conferences, and being a friendly and welcoming community member with his online persona. I have never formally met Adam, but he seems like a genuinely nice person too.

Other nominations for this year included:

Each year we receive many nominations, and it is always hard to pick the winner. This year we received the highest number of nominations ever received for the Malcolm Tredinnick Memorial Price with some being nominated twice, and the highest being six times. Some people have been nominated in multiple years, so if your nominee didn’t make it this year, you can always nominate them again next year.

Malcolm would be very proud of the legacy he has fostered in our community!
